music: ROSS COPPERMAN Welcome To Reality (RCA).
HE'S seen as the blue-eyed boy of indie in the States. But, a few tracks apart, Copperman's debut album is filled with derivative radio-friendly anthems recalling everyone from Bryan Adams to Oasis. Opener All She Wrote will have you checking the credits to see if it was written by the Gallaghers, while Found You ticks all the Coldplay chart boxes. The songs most likely to have impact here in the UK are Robbie Williams clones I Get By and Lucky Day - both co-written with the Robster's hit-maker Guy Chambers, the composer of mega-hit Angels. It's left to a hidden jazz-tinted track to showcase Copperman's keyboard credentials. PC
